You had to be in San Antonio at NARUC's Annual Meeting.
The PUF team was there too, asking the PUF Question of the Day, each day of the conference. And we handed out fun buttons to those gracious attendees who answered. Greg Bollom of Madison Gas and Electric must have wanted to collect them, because he answered PUF's Question of the Day on each of the three days! You'll enjoy reading the answers and seeing what attendees homed in on at NARUC's always awesome and well-attended annual meeting.
We asked, on Monday at meeting start, What do you want to hear about at this Annual Meeting?
Commissioner Greer Gillis, District of Columbia PSC
What I want to hear about, and I got a taste of it yesterday, at the gas committee meeting, was the impact that the natural gas bans are having on cities and states, and ultimately what would be the role of the Commission, the Commissioners. It was a great discussion Sunday at the gas committee meeting. It ended up being a discussion, not a PowerPoint presentation. But it gave an opportunity for all sides to weigh in on what needs to be done. Everyone agreed what the impacts are. And everyone agreed with what the impacts are to the states and how it affects the consumers.
